AKVA group Land Based A/S, a subsidiary of AKVA group ASA, has entered into a co-operation agreement with Cooke Aquaculture Inc., to deliver several larger land-based smolt projects. The first of these projects is a project in Chile with expected finalization of the contract in Q3 2019. The final deliveries are estimated to be from Q4 2019 to Q4 2021.
In order to support customers in the development of their increasingly large and complex RAS projects, AKVA recently announced the formation of AKVA group Land based Americas based in Puerto Montt, Chile, and the appointment of Mary Ann Rademacher as the General Manager of the new organization.
The company has experienced strong global growth in sales of recirculated aquaculture systems over recent years. The team has worked on projects within the Americas, as well as some of the largest global RAS projects in Norway, the Faroe Islands, and Tasmania, Australia.
